Keep Calm and Call the Dean of Students

A Guide to Understanding the Many Facets of the Dean of Students' Role

"The role of the Dean of Students on campus has provided a home for student support, advocacy and crisis management for decades. Keep Calm and Call the Dean of Students uses the voices of past and present student affairs professionals to provide insight into 'a day in the life' of the Dean of Students. This is an excellent resource for those in current Dean of Students positions and for those aspiring to be in the role at some point in their career.”

Vernon A. Wall, Director, Business Development at LeaderShape and President and Founder, One Better World, LLC; 2020–2021 President ACPA – College Student Educators International

“Framing development through the lens of emancipation will forever shift graduate preparation and professional practice in student affairs. Abes, Jones, Stewart, and chapter authors have transformed the theoretical foundation of student affairs into a more complex and liberatory understanding of student development, and for that I am eternally grateful.”

Jason C. Garvey, Associate Professor of Higher Education and Student Affairs Administration

The Productive Graduate Student Writer

How to Manage Your Time, Process, and Energy to Write Your Research Proposal, Thesis, and Dissertation and Get Published

"Writing proficiency is not just for graduate students in literature and history. Practicing professionals, regardless of field, devote much of their time to writing memos, policy briefs, proposals, reports, and other documents. This book is a gem: A gifted scholar and graduate school dean provides precisely the kind of practical, tested advice that all students need to write theses, dissertations, grant proposals, job applications, and scholarly articles efficiently. I wholeheartedly recommend it to everyone who has ever suffered from the barriers to successful writing: procrastination, distractions, self-doubt, writer’s block, and an inability to accept any standard short of perfection."

Men and Masculinities

Theoretical Foundations and Promising Practices for Supporting College Men's Development

"Tillapaugh and McGowan have compiled an essential resource for everyone who works with college men, from the newest faculty member or student affairs professional to the experienced veteran. Starting with a history of masculinities studies within college student development, they introduce new voices that challenge us to examine our assumptions with an intersectional lens. Perhaps most useful is their practical advice for creating campus coalitions and taking our work into the future."

Jan Deeds, Ph.D., Director
